Caltex Socceroos star Mat Leckie will remain in Germany for at least another three years after signing a contract extension with FC Ingolstadt.
The club confirmed on Friday that the 25-year-old has agreed to remain with the Bundesliga club until June 2019.
Leckie joined Ingolstadt from fellow German club FSV Frankfurt in 2014 and has made 65 appearances for the club, scoring 10 goals.
The Melbourne-born attacker helped the club earn promotion to the Bundesliga in his first season and played a key role as Ingolstadt finished mid-table in their maiden season in the top flight.
Leckie started in Australia’s 2-0 win over Iraq in Perth on Thursday night and was unlucky not to find the scoresheet after striking the woodwork with a superb header in the opening half.
The Socceroos’ World Cup Qualification campaign continues on Wednesday morning (AEST) against UAE in Abu Dhabi.
